Andrea Carlone Giovanni
The Italian painter Andrea Carlone Giovanni was born in Genoa. Carlone studied under his father, who later sent him with Pietro Scorri, who was in Genoa at the time. His early work was influenced by Bernardo Castello, whose daughter Carlone married in 1609. "Venus with Cupid", 1607, produced during that time, shows those particularities. Carlone is believed to have contributed to the frescoes in the Palazzo del Quirinale and in the Palazzo Rospigliosi-Pallavicini as an assistant to Castello Tavarone. -1584

Christian Wilhelm Ernst Dietrich
The German painter and etcher Christian Wilhelm Ernst Dietrich died in Dresden. He received his first training under the landscape painter Johann Alexander Thiele and later traveled with him to Arnstadt to paint landscapes for stage sets. In 1730 he was presented to Frederick-Agustus I as a prodigy and was appointed as his official court painter. He preferred Dutch Italian painters and the Dutch Little Masters' style and was able to reproduce the painting style of his models with subtlety, while retaining his own stylistic individuality. His works after Rembrandt's are particularly admired. -1774

The Rubens oil sketch, "The Miracles of St. Francis of Paole", the last of three preparatory sketches for an altarpiece, was committed to the Getty Museum in California for 6.31 million, because no buyer could be found in Britain.

Vincent Van Gogh
In London one of the last oil paintings made by Vincent Van Gogh, before he committed suicide in 1890, "The Garden at Auvers" was the focal point of an embarrassing scandal. Its previous owner, Jacques Walter, claimed that he was solicited for bribes, in exchange for an export permit that would have allowed it to be sold at an auction overseas, by two culture ministers. -1994

Hunterian Art Gallery

Picasso Website
Oliver Picasso, grandson of the father of Cubism - Pablo Picasso, entered cyberspace with the creation of the first-ever authentic Picasso site on the World Wide Web.

David Smith
The Centro de Arte Nacional Reina Sofia in Madrid exhibited the sculpture work made by David Smith (1906-1965). He was greatly influenced in his style by the Spanish master Pablo Picasso. Pieces made under Picasso's influences, such as "Agricultural Head", and "Steel Head" were included in the event. Smith is noted for his modification of North American sculptural schemes to which he added a more serious identity and passion. -1996

John Deakin
The National Portrait Gallery featured an exhibition on the work of John Deakin. The exhibition revealed his remarkable power as a photographer, however brief. He also made surrealist collages and painted in a deliberately primitive style, before dying in 1972. -1996

Russian government officials threatened to bring back home a priceless collection of imperial jewels that was on an exhibition tour in the United States, if an agreement between the two sides was not reached. -1997
